The beach is quite rough, the sand is not white, but is very good to do the surf. The surrounding is just like any big city in the world. The only good thing that I impressed when I was there is Bali New year. We got there during Bali New year , so we got to see all the ceremony. Beautiful costume, and nice performance.

All though kuta beach is a must do experience in Bali there are a lot of much much nicer beaches out there.

Kuta is there for it's people watching, tout talking and activities.

Don't expect to relax on the beach as you will most certainly have someone coming up to you every few minutes trying to sell you everything from shells to bow and arrows. Depending on what mood you are in this can be great fun talking to the locals who are just trying to make a living to a down right annoyance. My recommendation is to try and take it in your stride.

We rented boogie boards whilst we were there and had a great time. Just watch out for those dumping waves!

A bit back from the beach there are also a few restaurant gems that are good value for money.

In conclusion go for the excitement and relax elsewhere! :)

Nice beach just to have suntan but swimming is a no no cuz its very murky. Lots of vendors walking around and uncomfortable especially when you prefer to have alone time. Its just along the roadside and lots of vehicle parks along the side. Better beach off the other side. Not too crowded.

Not the best beach in the area, but be prepared to be harassed by all locals trying to sell you everything from a cold drink to jewellery.

Was the most amazing experience. Been o Bali more than 10 times now and never realised the amount of turtle activity on kuta beach. Got to do a large turtle release which was great for the kids and adults alike. During the day kuta beach is very busy with way too many halkers. Do not get henna on the beach tattoos as known too many people have major reactions, for a quieter and safer beach to swim head a little further up towards legian
